Robert Hill  Artist. born Hampstead London, 1964. also studied fine art at the University of Plymouth stationed in Exeter, obtaining a 2/1 Honours degree and graduating in the year 2000. Robert who now lives in  Ilfracombe North Devon focuses mainly on the local land and seascapes of this rugged north devon coastline. He has exhibited nationally over the past 15 years, with  his work also gaining some international interest when helping to set up two charities for The Marine Life Conservation Society  and Combe Martin Wild Life park by exhibiting along side two sea lions by the names of, Aero and Morgan at, The Landmark Theatre Ilfracombe, feb, 2009 and The Queens Theatre, Barnstaple in Sept, 2009, these two advents managing to raise thousands of pounds. His work appears for public viewing at The Sir General Redvere Buller in Crediton, Exeter and The Listening Post in Bristol. Robert continues to work and exhibit in the West Country, with current exhibitions at, the gallery@500ft in lynton and the Grampus Inn, Lee Bay. Ilfracombe.  As a studio based artist and working mainly from photographs and drawings, we are presented with a complex interaction between realism and abstraction. This interplay allows for expression of freedom in his work, opening up the possibility of fresh access in the depiction of nature, with the idea of increasing inventive creativity, in order to broaden his own understanding and comprehension of colour, structure and perspective. Using this approach the work produced reveals some strong, colourful, energetic and enigmatic depictions of the local areas.  The exhibition at the Queens Theatre in August will consist of both seascape and figurative work by Robert Hill.
